Top 6 Companies Using AI In Drug Discovery And Development
What if coming up with a new drug could be measured in days rather than years? What if new medication would cost thousands instead of billions of dollars? Just look at how an AI pharma start-up developed a potential new drug in 46 days! Artificial intelligence technologies promise to speed up the process of drug discovery and development and make it more cost-effective. As the market is flourishing, and it takes time and effort to separate the wheat from the chaff, we collected the most promising AI pharma companies out there. Drug design is a key area AI is revolutionizing. In one of our latest database projects, we de...

Mobile Printer Produces Microneedle Vaccines
Researchers at MIT have developed a printer that can create large numbers of microneedle patch-style vaccines in places where they are needed quickly. Moreover, the printed patches can deliver thermostable mRNA vaccines, whereby the mRNA therapeutic is encapsulated in lipid nanoparticles before printing to enhance its shelf-life at room temperature and avoid the need for cold storage and transport. The current prototype can produce 100 such patches over the space of two days, but the researchers believe that they can scale up the technology to produce hundreds of vaccines a day. The technology could be very useful in addre...

Propelling Rare Disease Research for More Than 50 Years
Vials of samples from the NIGMS HGCR. Credit: Coriell Institute for Medical Research. The year 2022 marked 50 years since the creation of the NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository (HGCR) at the Coriell Institute for Medical Research in Camden, New Jersey. The NIGMS HGCR consists of cell lines and DNA samples with a focus on those from people with rare, heritable diseases. “Many rare diseases now have treatments because of the samples in the NIGMS HGCR,” says Nahid Turan, Ph.D., Coriell’s chief biobanking officer and co-principal investigator of the NIGMS HGCR. She gives the example of a rare disease advocacy group wh...

Notes on monkeypox
If you remember the right wing freakout over Ebola virus -- of which IIRC there were fewer than 5 cases in the U.S., none of which was fatal -- you may wonder why the deafening silence about monkeypox. Ha ha! You don ' t have to wonder. So far, he monkeypox outbreak in the U.S. and Europe seems to be largely if not entirely limited to men who have sex with men. This will likely change, of course.Here are the basics about monkeypox. Unfortunately it ' s behind the NYT paywall but it ' s the best summary I could find. Anyway I ' ll review the situation for you. Monkeypox is indigenous to sub-Saharan Africa, but among th...

Will Microbes Finally Force Modernization of the American Health Care System?
Mike Magee MD Science has a way of punishing humans for their arrogance. In 1996, Dr. Michael Osterholm found himself rather lonely and isolated in medical research circles. This was the adrenaline-infused decade of blockbuster pharmaceuticals focused squarely on chronic debilitating diseases of aging. And yet, there was Osterholm, in Congressional testimony delivering this message: “I am here to bring you the sobering and unfortunate news that our ability to detect and monitor infectious disease threats to health in this country is in serious jeopardy…For 12 of the States or territories, there is no one w...

America Can Still Deliver on Global Vaccine Diplomacy
It is hard to see how science alone can end the pandemic without the rallying power of global diplomacy. The United States has played a leadership role in previous outbreaks, such as Ebola. It could play a similar role now to help consign the current pandemic to epidemic status. (Source: The RAND Blog)

From Drug Design To Distribution: This Is How Robotics, A.I. and Blockchain Transforms Pharma
Exoskeletons to aid pharma factory workers. 3D printing to allow pharmacies to produce drugs on the spot. Blockchain technologies to help fight counterfeit drugs.  These are just bits and pieces, but the entire process of the pharmaceutical supply chain will be affected by disruptive technologies. Let me show you how innovations will make it more efficient, faster and cheaper than ever before. “We call it Robi”, the smiling pharmacist told me when I looked at the robotic dispenser pacing up and down in a small glass-fronted drug storage room of the pharmacy. The robot spares humans about two hours of med...

COVID ’s lab leak theory obscures zoonosis and progression
Even as COVID-19 is found in apes, big cats, minks, domestic cats, other small mammals, and now in U.S. deer, some don ’t want to let go of the insultingly simplistic “lab leak” theory.
